Snowdonia rescue for father and children aged 17 and 12

A father and his two children aged 17 and 12 are rescued from a Snowdonia peak in darkness.

The group had dialled 999 saying they were stuck on Moel Siabod at around 17:10 GMT on Sunday.

They told rescuers they could see lights in Capel Curig and the A5 road, but they were seeing the road over the Crimea Pass in the opposite direction.

Rescuers found the walkers by tracing the source of their mobile phone signal.

Members of the Ogwen and RAF Valley mountain rescue teams led them to safety.

A spokesperson for the Ogwen team said the group had been on steep ground without torches.
